    Wow. Thanks for the great news. I have just launched a web site and blog for the express purpose of helping people find info about diabetes. I’d love to band together with like minds.

    Hi Amy, I see you wrote there’s no group logo, but are they going to use the words “taking a stand against diabetes”? IMHO that’s not supportive. Take a stand supporting people with diabetes would make far more sense. Or take a stand against misinformation about diabetes…but not standing against diabetes itself.

    Ellen, that slogan is not part of the Diabetes Advocates program. Amy pulled an image to use in the post – it’s not intended to be part of our message. Her “United to Get Noticed” title is much more apt because the program doesn’t actually do advocating, but rather promotes the program members.

    This is a great move, and I’ll be eager to learn more and be involved as much as possible from my little D-Corner Booth here in Indianapolis. Thanks, Manny and David (and Amy for getting the message out!)
